Default Watering Hole Webcam...

No, it's not your local bar, it's an actual watering hole in Africa. It's pretty addictive. You don't see anything for long periods of time, but then different animals show up - sometimes entire heards.

It's pretty wild - no pun intended

Check it out

I just saw a shooting star.

EDIT: maybe not, there seems to be a lot of things flying around.

I was emailed the link with not much more info that I gave here...

Apparently it's Nkorho Pan - A natural water hole in the prestigious Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve, in South Africa.

I've seen a HUGE heard of some kind of Ox -had to be 50 of them. Also, there were monkey's and some rhinos. It's pretty cool to check in on every once in a while.

I saw a heard of boar, I think, they got scared off by something big, but it never came in view of the camera. This is pretty cool if you have the patience to wait.


Reminds me of the story of some private game reserve in the states where you could "hunt" by webcam and then actually shoot your game from the comfort of your own home. I think they were shut down.

Haven't seen squat yet. 5:09a I should see something soon I guess... Lots of birdie's though. Guess it's in a tree.
